2004 Marqués de Cáceres Rioja Rosé

Continuing with the Summer of Dry Rosés, I tried the 2004 Marqués de Cáceres Rioja Rosé. From Spain, it's a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha. Perhaps the most striking thing about this wine is the color--I haven't seen a good example of it online, but it's got an orange tint to it that's really captivating. As for the wine itself, it's not bad, but not impressive either. I actually thought that it would make a really interesting sangria.
